The two people smiled at each other, making the Alliance Head feel that he really was at the wrong place. If these people wanted to flirt, then did he really need to be here? He had thought this was about serious business! Well, having the honor of seeing Grandmaster Leng made up for it a bit. And if this could dissuade this man from going to the Yun Zou Sect, that would also be good. He just had to hold on a bit longer.
Before Hua Min could sigh with relief though, Jinde’s smile broadened. “Since the God of Medicine doesn’t know and the God of War is on our side, there shouldn’t be a problem if I came over to the Yun Zou Sect with a delegation from the Liu He Alliance, would there?”
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows. “I could have sworn I had said that the situation in the sect was very dangerous.” Continue reading
Leng Jin Yu took a deep breath and sighed. “It’s not that I didn’t want to see you. But I didn’t know what your situation was and I didn’t want to risk anything.”
Jinde pursed his lips. “Well, I went to the Liu He Alliance as you said and waited here for a long time. But you didn’t come to look, you didn’t even try to reach me once. Can’t you send a letter at least? I’m really bored. And lonely. Don’t you long to see me at all?”
Leng Jin Yu smiled. “I do. But I guess that’s not why you contacted me. So what is going on?”
Jinde pursed his lips even further. Ah, his husband was way too smart. And he was much better at withstanding his charm than Chun Yin had been back then. If it was him, he would’ve just accepted whatever he said without thinking too much about it. It seemed that wasn’t possible with Leng Jin Yu. “Well, isn’t it because Alliance Head Hua told me you already created a realm? If you have, why haven’t you contacted me? Does this mean I can return to the Yun Zou Sect?” Continue reading
Hua Min gulped. “Please don’t joke with me.”
Jinde raised his brows. “Joke? I didn’t know I had made a joke.”
The Alliance Head felt cold sweat cover his brow. A few weeks had already gone by but he still didn’t know how to deal with this person. In fact, he wasn’t even sure how we should address him. Just being Grandmaster Leng’s partner meant that he had to be paid respect. But he couldn’t call him Grandmaster considering that he wasn’t in his peak condition. So what was he supposed to call him? Well, never mind that, even if he knew how to address him, it wouldn’t solve the issue at hand. “Didn’t you say you were here because you couldn’t be seen outside? What happened to that?”
Jinde gave an exasperated sigh. “That’s true. But can’t you imagine that I’m missing my husband? I haven’t heard from him all this time! What am I supposed to do without him? I don’t even have a task here.” Not that he had had a task in the Yun Zou Sect but Hua Min didn’t know that and it was better if he didn’t. Continue reading
In the Yun Zou Sect, Qiu Ling accompanied Jing Yi in his cultivation. Meanwhile, a certain someone in the Liu He Alliance had grown bored. Jinde sighed and looked out of the window, wondering just how many more days needed to go by until his husband would finally come and bring him the good news. Just how long could it take until the realm was ready for him to move in there? And was that child still there, making trouble?
Ah, he should have educated him better when he was young. Now, it was already too late. His cute child had somehow turned into an adult demon that couldn’t be advised anymore. Even if they saw each other and he told Jin Ling to finally give it up and find somebody else to love, it still wouldn’t change anything. He knew that but he still hoped that there would be a way in the future to make matters work out. After all, this was still his child. He also didn’t want to be harsh on him. If they could find a way to deal with everything, then it would also make him happy. Continue reading
Qiu Ling left the realm after helping Leng Jin Yu complete the palace. He had filled in what Leng Jin Yu couldn’t remember about it, trying to stay as true to the way it had been back when he had lived there with his parents, including some of the details that had been changed since then.
He couldn’t help but be surprised just how clear those memories still were. It was as if it hadn’t been thousands of years since then but only a few days or weeks. It truly made him feel odd. He had always thought that … the past was long in the past and didn’t hold much for him anymore other than the danger of being outed as someone with mixed blood. To think he hadn’t already forgotten about it … Continue reading
Jing Yi really wanted to reach to the side and tug at Shao Hai’s sleeve to get a second opinion on this. Just why was this man looking like this? And why did it seem as if he was looking in their direction?
Just when he wondered about that, a dull thud sounded behind them. The connection between the two people broke and Jing Yi glanced over his shoulder, his brows jumping up. There was actually a martial sister lying on the ground.
“What happened?” One of the Elders made his way over and frowned.
“She fainted.” Continue reading
Zhangsun Xun Yi’s brows twitched, furrowing even further together in the process. He raised his gaze to the person squatting in front of his desk with an excited expression. Never mind that this disciple had run from the special dimension and that person’s care and then didn’t return for five years, how could he just casually ask for something like this?
The Grandmaster sighed and shook his head. “The list of participants was already finalized weeks ago.”
Qiu Ling didn’t answer and just looked at him. What finalized weeks ago? He had only heard about it two weeks ago. It couldn’t be that that had already been too late, could it? No, that was impossible! He had prepared so much just so he could impress his beloved today. He definitely wouldn’t let go of this opportunity! Continue reading
This was the second time Xiao Dong had received the honor of being assigned a mission by his king. The first one had been very hard for him to accomplish. In fact, even though he tried his best, he hadn’t really contributed any major achievements. If anything, then he only sometimes managed to make sure that Shao Hai wouldn’t be able to get close to His Majesty’s beloved and instead had to train his sword arts. This could hardly be called a contribution at all.
But this second mission seemed much easier in comparison. He only had to find a special opportunity for His Majesty to appear before his beloved. That couldn’t be so difficult, could it? No, he was sure that this time, nothing would go wrong!
With that thought in mind, Xiao Dong started to inquire about any mortal festivities that would come up soon. Wasn’t there some festival intended for lovers to confess their feelings? Wasn’t there some festival where people would go out and have fun while wearing masks so that His Majesty would be able to hide his identity and then get close to his beloved in that manner? Continue reading
Xiao Dong sheathed his sword and hurried over to the two of them, grabbing Shao Hai by the shoulder and pulling him away. “What are you even saying? You barely managed to get through the simple manual yourself and you want to teach him?! Aren’t you afraid you’ll teach him something wrong?”
Shao Hai slapped his hand away and furrowed his brows. “What are you even saying? I might not have been fast and there might still be some things I’m not very good at but I have managed to get through the manual! So how could it be wrong? And furthermore, I’m just helping him out a bit. He could take a look at the manual himself. And if there’s something he doesn’t understand, then we can still go and ask the seniors!” Continue reading
“Still no progress?” Shao Hai couldn’t help but furrow his brows while he asked and watch for Jing Yi’s reaction. He didn’t want to pour salt onto his wounds but so much time had already gone by and he had never heard him say that there had even been a little bit of progress. So every once in a while he would still ask and then try to make him ask his senior martial brother again to get some tips. Wasn’t that how the other disciples learned to cultivate? It couldn’t be that his Xiao Yi wouldn’t be able to do what they did, could it?
Jing Yi gave a wry smile and shook his head. “No, nothing yet.”
Shao Hai reached out and patted his shoulder. “Don’t take it to heart. I’m sure you’ll still be able to become a hero. Who knows? Maybe it’s more likely for people to become heroes when they are older? Nobody ever said they had to be really young.” Continue reading
